The Dublin San Ramon Services District board filled two leadership roles this week by selecting a board member to fill an existing vacancy and appointing an interim general manager, who will step in when the current leader retires in November.
At its Tuesday night meeting, the board selected Dublin resident Madelyne Misheloff, who has experience with resources consulting, to serve until Dec. 2, 2016. She has worked as a project coordinator for Development Dimensions International and for PDI Ninth House, a San Francisco-based global human resources consulting company.
The vacancy was created when board member Dawn Benson resigned in August to pursue a job within the district as executive services supervisor, a mid-management role that she ultimately did not get, according to the district. She later tried to apply for the temporary board post but withdrew her application before an appointee was named.
San Ramon resident Rosalind Rogoff, who writes "The Observer" blog for the Pleasanton Weekly, and Dublin residents Alan Kilpatrick and Benson applied for the post. Benson withdrew her application Tuesday.
The board also voted Tuesday to approve a contract adjustment for district employee John Archer, specifying he will become the district's interim general manager once current general manager Bert Michalczyk retires in November.
Archer, administrative services manager, has overseen the district's financial services since the beginning of 2015. He was previously the interim administrative services manager and an accounting supervisor. He was appointed as interim general manager at a special meeting Sept. 29.
The board chose Nicole Genzale, who has worked in the Executive Services Division since 2009, for the position of executive services supervisor, effective Sept. 28.
